127th AES Convention Papers Co-Chair Veronique Larcher
“Beyond the awards, workshops, special events and bustling exhibition halls, the exchange of significant technical information remains the backbone of every Audio Engineering Convention,” states 127th AES Convention Chair Agnieszka Roginska. “This mission is exemplified by a robust syllabus of Papers and Posters. AES Papers Committee Co-Chairs Veronique Larcher [pictured] and Steve Garrett have developed an authoritative program, which exemplifies the level of accomplishment achieved by innovators in every sector of our community.”
127th AES Convention Papers Presentations include an emphasis on the burgeoning digital game industry. Highlights include The Wii Remote as a Musical Instrument—Technology and Case Studies, by Paul Lehrman, and Eidola—An Interactive Augmented Reality Audio-Game Prototype, by Nikolaos Moustakas of Ionian University.
Other highlights from the schedule of 154 presentations include Intrinsic Mode Function Analysis for Loudspeaker Defect Detection and Classification: Poster by Wei Junfeng, Institute of Acoustics, Chinese Academy of Sciences; Maintaining Audio Performance in Portable Devices While Lowering Power Consumption: Paper by Peter Frith, Wolfson Microelectronics; Spatial Soundfield Reproduction with Zones of Quiet: Poster by Thushara Abhayapala, Australian National University; and The Effect of Whole-Body Vibration on Preferred Bass Equalization in Automotive Audio Systems: Paper by Durand Begault, NASA Ames Research Center.
“The process of gleaning through almost 200 scrupulously researched proposals is daunting work,” says AES Executive Director Roger Furness. “Each year we see a steady flow of submissions. The review board is tasked with selecting the timeliest and technically relevant [submissions] from a field of extremely high-level candidates. We are indebted to our presenters for their willingness to share their knowledge, and to our Co-Chairs for building the best possible program from a splendid array of options.”
The 127th AES Convention will be held at the Javits Center in New York City, October 9–12, 2009. The AES states that comprehensive abstracts of all Papers and Posters will be available soon on the calendar of Events to be posted at www.aes.org/events/127.
